Delphinium Flower/Δελφίνιο Λουλούδι

Spring is here and the rain is going to pour, well it already has! Luckily, it didn’t rain on any parades today.  Set my clock an hour ahead because of day light saving time. It’s great for conserving energy but, it sucks to lose an hour of sleep.

Happy Greek Independence Day!

Η άνοιξη είναι εδώ, και θα βρέξει πολύ, καλά έχει ήδη βρέξει πολύ!  Ευτυχώς δεν εβρεξε  σε καμία παρέλαση σήμερα. Ρυθμίσα το ρολόι μου μια ώρα μπροστά λόγω της θερινής ώρας. Είναι καλό για τη διατήρηση της ενέργειας, αλλά δυστυχώς χάνεις μια ώρα ύπνου.

ΧΡΟΝΙΑ ΜΑΣ ΠΟΛΛΑ! ΕΛΕΥΘΕΡΙΑ Η ΘΑΝΑΤΟΣ!

Smooth Cala Lily

Cala lilies are perennial flowers that can spread all over a garden. They are  very easy to maintain. I love the smooth texture of the lily. The word ‘cala’ comes from the Greek for beautiful, although in Greece if you say ‘kala’ it means good. The flower is poisonous, so pets and children should be kept away from the flower as to avoid the flower from being eaten.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Marigolds/ Κατιφέδες

The “herb of the sun’ as it is also called, is symbolic of passion and creativity.

The Marigold flower is said to be used by the early Christians to be placed on the altar of The Virgin Mary instead of gold coins, hence the name ‘Mary’s gold’.

The flower can be used to ease the pain of wasp or bee stings and even burns and skin infections.

While the rest of Europe is still in the ice age, Athens is enjoying some great early spring weather. I’m not bragging 😉

Ενώ η υπόλοιπη Ευρώπη βρίσκεται ακόμα στην  εποχή των παγετώνων, η Αθήνα απολαμβάνει εξαιρετικές πρώιμες ανοιξιάτικες καιρικές συνθήκες.
